Ko Wing-man, a senior official, said the health department and police are investigating.

He said he was "shocked" by the cases, as intravascular infusion is a medical practice that should only be conducted under a doctor's supervision.

The health department has instructed the beauty treatment center to stop carrying out the procedure.
